Another great senior session in downtown Mt. Clemens on a brisk, fall morning. Here's a few of my favorites:

Happy Halloween!

Here are some of my favorites from Tyler's senior photos taken in downtown Mt. Clemens.

An energetic family at Stony Creek Metropark.

Getting one kid to sit still for a session is easy.  Two?  definitely manageable.  Five?  Now that's crazy talk!  Thankfully these kids were able to wind down for just a few seconds to get the last photo of all of them standing so nice... then, not-so-nice.

By the way, I think the "not-so-nice" picture is my favorite for the session!


So much has changed since her last photo session!  We took a walk through Waldenburg Park for some happy 6-month photos of this little princess.  Somehow we didn't get the message that mosquitogheddon was happening.  I have never seen so many Mosquitos, all in one place, this late in the season.  Oh, and I ate one...

Another little guy I photographed at George George Memorial Park:


Luckily we caught some great weather for Leo's session at George George Memorial Park.  Here are some of my favorites:


This little guy is gonna be a heartbreaker with his bright blue eyes and big smile. I know he's already got Mom wrapped around his finger :)  Here are a few favorites from his photo session at Yates Cider Mill this past weekend

Up early for some "Pure Michigan" moments.

Just a few photos from my trip to Yates Cider Mill today.  It was a busy morning that started off with a 1 year-old session at the cider mill and ended with a senior session in Mt. Clemens.  I love these perfect fall days!

Another perfect fall session.

Check out this awesome family from their session at Stony Creek Metropark!  I really enjoyed spending time with them (Jay is almost as funny as me) and the girls did great!  I never met two girls who cheesed as hard as they did when I lifted my camera up.  I had to perform some emergency maneuvers to catch more natural expressions.  It was definitely successful!

Here are some of my favorites:

Rob and Becka's country wedding.

All the details were in place for Rob and Becka's wedding in the small town of Sandusky, Michigan.  Everything except the sunshine was creatively handmade and the whole wedding flowed from the ceremony to reception.  I was really impressed and had a blast documenting it!

Impromptu photo session.

I have a camera in my hands for a good part of most days yet, sadly enough, it's never pointed at my own family.  A couple days ago I was photographing my beautiful niece and Leah asked if she could have her picture taken.  Of course I took advantage of it!

Lilly and Drew are 3 months old!

The cute twins that I photographed in July are growing up so fast!   Little Drew has caught up to his big sister.  They look so much alike now!  Thankfully they coordinated their crying fits for the session- when one started, the other one stopped.  They sure made it easy to figure out who to take pictures of next!

Having a baby is an incredible experience.  All of your family and friends share in the joy created by your beautiful newborn.   Why not send them an announcement card as amazing and unique as your little one they're celebrating?  I'm now offering boutique cards that come in several different shapes and designs for all my clients.  They're printed on heavy matte paper stock and UV coated for exceptional quality and durability.

Below is just one example of the endless possibilities.

It's amazing to think that exactly 3 months ago from his birth day, we were taking pregnancy photos of Cohen's Mom and Dad!  He was just 1/3 of his current size and comfy-cozy at a toasty 98.6 degrees inside Mom.

The photo session started a little rough because the little guy was a little fussy... swaddling, feeding, holding... nothing worked.  Then it hit me.  more heat!  After all, I believe it was only a mere 85 degrees and sweltering in the room already.  So I turned up the heat a little more and within seconds, he turned into jello.  We cruised through the rest of the session and he did great!  According to his Dad, "heat" was Cohen's kryptonite.  We all have our weaknesses...

Here were the before pictures...
